Utah still has the nation's largest households, highest fertility rate, lowest median age, youngest age at marriage and most stay-at-home moms.
That's according to the annual American Community Survey, which was released Thursday by the U.S. Census Bureau. The statistics give a snapshot of America, and Utah, in hundreds of categories.
Demographers have long said that the Mormon culture has made Utah unique with those large families. But slowly over time, Utah is trending toward becoming more like the rest of the country.
The survey this year shows that Utahns still are typically young, white, married, have a household income of $54,744, have two cars and a house worth $217,200.
